Humans are hard-wired to select sweets and fats, so whether its because of capitalism or choice, we're gonna pick the unhealthy ones most of the time. I do download into the 'addictive' component; again, whether it is from a dopamine cycle or habit is almost irrelevant.
Almost, because knowing can help us with strategies. I do dispute Hyman's tendency to equate heroin with sugar. A little extreme, maybe? But that's where the addictive behavior figures in, and where behavior modification has to be an emphasized component of dietary and lifestyle change.
I do like the way Hyman tries to connect that back to community, and how to enlist community support in ones' change.
I don't know that the web community is the only option, but it is the one most strongly supported by this book. I did chuckle at his Inflammation questionnaire: If only his prescription didn't also include his own brand of products.
There was one line I found quite ironically funny where he complains that the solution isn't "diet and exercise" the way we've been hearing our doctors suggest for decades. Um, hypocritical much?
Because that is, after all what he is recommending. Along with a healthy dose of his brand of supplements. But don't waste your money on lab tests and supplements. View all 10 comments. Feb 15, Susan rated it liked it Shelves: Thanks Goodreads for the great giveaway!!!
While I appreciate Dr. The second section of the book includes eleven quizzes including the energy metabolism quiz, the oxidative stress quiz, the adrenal fatigue quiz, etc.
Part three prepares for the Blood Sugar Solution. Part four on page finally discusses the six week plan. I especially enjoyed the section about the one week media fast. I will definitely be incorporating those into my own low sugar diet. Anyone downloading this book has already acknowledged that they need to make drastic changes.
If this had been a simpler, more concise book I would have given The Blood Sugar Solution a rave review. Feb 17, Nancy added it. I'm not a health food nut.
In fact, I love my diet cola more than the average American. I ordered this book simply because I'm going to Hawaii in a minute and I thought I might make some changes and look fantastic in a bathing suit.
Chances are slim, but there was a possibility. Maybe because I'm new to the understanding-the-power-of-foods movement but I found the information a great launching pad for me. I accepted very early on that there was no chance I'd get my 23 year old body back I found th I'm not a health food nut. I accepted very early on that there was no chance I'd get my 23 year old body back I found that a condition that has been plaguing me for a few years can be greatly improved by controlling inflammation through monitoring foods that cause it.
Certainly, I'll continue taking prescription anti-inflammatories but I thought Hyman clearly explained the process of inflammation and made a couple of supplemental changes to my diet. It's not huge but it's something. Hyman breaks down certain herbal supplements and their health benefits so I knew what I should be looking for. I'm not going gung-ho because I realize herbal supplements are not monitored by the FDA, but I have found a reputable health food store that sells supplements with the ingredients he indicated.
I'm also replacing at least one can of Diet Coke with a bottle of flavored green tea extracts. For me, that is huge. I liked it and found it helpful. View all 3 comments. Feb 27, Rachel rated it it was amazing Shelves: Thanks to goodreads for sending me this great book! This is written by an MD so there is some in-depth info being covered, but I thought it was pretty easy to read and understand.
He provides some startling statistics especially about children's nutrition that really are inspiring me to make some changes for my family. For example, the sugar consumption of an average person has gone up from 10 pounds per year in the 's to currently pounds of sugar per person per year! Also, Thanks to goodreads for sending me this great book!
Also, the breakfast cereals with the worst nutritional value have the most advertising? I could go on, but I won't. Now I know that statistics can be skewed for different purposes, but this is still some eye-opening information on a topic that effects all of us. So basically the book lays out a 6 week plan to get started on this healthy lifestyle where you eliminate sugars and reboot your metabolism.
There are some quizzes you can take to help personalize the plan to your needs, and also a website to check out. There are recipes at the end of the book, although I wished there were more. Overall, if you are looking to change your nutritional habits or learn more about America's health crisis, give this book a read. Jul 31, Karen Jackson rated it it was amazing.
Good book to understand the importance of diet in our health. Nicely explained with scientific explanations. Wisdom, tools and recipes to take back your health from processed sugary foods.
Don't miss reading this for your health. Oct 08, Pamela AllHoney rated it liked it Shelves: I really feel like this book has a lot of good information. My complaint is the extra and repetitious info that made the book tedious. Everything could have been said in less than half the time. Still like I said, the information was good and I do believe that our diet has a lot to do with the diseases and conditions that we acquire.
There are a few recipes included but I didn't see anything that appealed to me personally. This is a book I would still recommend for those persons who want to make I really feel like this book has a lot of good information.
This is a book I would still recommend for those persons who want to make healthy lifestyle changes. May 03, Jan Lance rated it really liked it. So far, it is saying what I have said for years that the medical community treats symptoms and not causes.
Our body is similar to a finely tuned engine where all the components must be in balance otherwise problems will develop. I'm only one-third through the book and feel like what I'm reading has a lot of truth to it. Here is a statement from the book: In Chapter 6 Functional Medicine: I can't wait to reach the end not of the book but to put into action the things I'm learning and to reverse some of the destructive imbalances in my body.
It's like having a Jaguar that isn't running correctly. If I were a car that is what I would be. So I want to become a body mechanic in my own life. I will update this when I am through and maybe weeks into my progress if this is a project I decide to persue.
I know it took me a long time. There was a lot to digest and absorb. Here is my update: I've been reading and re-reading it for some time. It is what I believe medicine should be. It is called Functional Medicine. In almost every case, and in every area, any system must have balance to function correctly.
If you were installing a pond in your yard as a landscape element, all the elements of the pond must fit together in such a way that the pond reaches homeostasis. Homeostasis is the property of a system that regulates its internal environment and tends to maintain a stable, constant condition of properties such as temperature or pH and other things for the human body.
It can be either an open or closed system. That's one example. A car engine is composed of many parts with different functions that must be within a certain range to work in balance with one another at which point you have a fine running car.
In our bodies all the parts must work together for us to be healthy and stable. Just as we should run a certain octane gasoline in our car, we need certain elements in our body in certain quantities and we need to feed it a certain quality of food for energy and nourishment. It is not just for Diabetics. This information will work for anyone.
This book explains the 7 areas that need to be in balance for you to be healthy. They are 1. Boosted Nutrition, 2 Regulated Hormones, 3. Reduced Inflammation, 4. Improved Digestion, 5. Maximized Detoxification, 6. Enhanced Metabolism, 7. Soothed Mind. There are quizzes you can take in each of these areas that will show what areas are possibly in an unbalanced state.
Once you take the tests, you can take your score and rate what level of imbalance you are in and then follow the plan to put it into balance. As it is in anything worthwhile, nothing is simple. I wish something could be simple! As you start the plan, you will give yourself a starting point by measuring and weighing. Journal what you are doing and what changes you notice.
Find out what supplements will help in this challenge. You will have to eliminate certain foods and drinks from your diet to break addictionsfor at least 6 weeks. It gives you guidance on exercise. If you follow the plan, you have the chance of eliminating medication, reversing disease processes, losing weight, and finding a balanced healthy way of living.
It will help you know how to maintain this lifestyle choice. I know that if your health is better, then you will be happier. I don't enjoy being sick. It is a total body adjustment. You will be tuned up and energized. I know this is a good choice for me and it is my plan to follow the directions I can and continue on the road to making a different choice about my life and my body.
Change does not come easy to me. I have already been working on certain changes for the past two years. Some days I do great and other days I fall flat on my face. I get up and start again. My plan is to succeed. I don't beat myself up. I just pick myself up, dust myself off and continue on my way.
I also give myself times when I'm free to do whatever I want without reprisal or guilt. I hope you will be interested in this book. It is of benefit to everyone no mater what disease you have, whether you are skinny or fat, and no mater what age you are. Come join with me and find your healthy balance. Mar 14, Experience Life added it. This book addresses one of the most important health issues of our time.
And if you have friends or relatives who are struggling with their weight, or with high blood pressure and cholesterol, or other inflammatory conditions, we think you — and they — will want the guidance, perspective and practical wisdom this book provides. We are currently in the middle of an epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes — what Dr. Even more This book addresses one of the most important health issues of our time.
Even more startling, most conventional doctors are having very little success in treating diabesity, which is the leading cause of chronic disease think heart disease, dementia, high blood pressure, cancer, etc. Hyman focuses on lifestyle — non-drug based approaches to preventing, treating, and even reversing diabesity. As prediabetic, this book has been a lifesaver of sorts Hyman provides a lot of beneficial and eye-opening information.
Sep 05, Kate Maxwell rated it it was ok Shelves: This book had some good information; however, there were two aspects of this book that I had a problem with. The first is that is was a constant AD for his website, which, at the time of reading it, did not have all of the features that he touted. I also had a problem with how Dr Hyman was trying to get people to self-diagnose and self-medicate, which I think are very dangerous prospects as a physician. It is one thing to make peo This book had some good information; however, there were two aspects of this book that I had a problem with.
It is one thing to make people aware of a situation, and completely another to tell people to take several supplements without really knowing what their specific issues are. I do agree that we need to get away from sugars and white flour as a nation. I think it would help to cure what ails us.
With the ever-rising rates of obesity in America, and with type 2 Diabetes being diagnosed at an alarming rate, to include children as young as 8 years old, I feel it is important to get the information out to the public and to have a vanguard that will help reverse this problem.
Unfortunately, I do not seeing it happen at a rate that will be beneficial. We need more people talking about this devastating epidemic of 'diabesity' and the evils of highly processed foods. Don't get me wrong. I think that there is good information in this book, but I also think that it could have been presented in a better way. I hope that America wakes up and stops its love affair with white flour and high fructose corn syrup. I think that we, as a nation, need to become more aware of our food and where it comes from and that medicine needs to start treating the cause of disease, not just putting more drugs in our bodies to find symptoms of what is truly wrong with us.
Once again, I did feel that this book could have been shorten by several pages simply removing all of the plugs for his website alone would do that! I also felt it irresponsible of the publisher to allow a book to have so many quizzes and remedies and not state again and again that it is best to have a medical professional run tests and then prescribe courses of action instead of wholesale 'take these supplements and feel better'. May 04, Margaret Chind rated it really liked it Shelves: My mother has type 2 diabetes and it seems that whenever you reach a certain age in her side of the family that is bound to happen.
It is dead on in inspiration and motivation. Written at a level that makes you part of your health care team. With a checklist format and a weekly overview, this appears to be something you can really do and without struggle for understanding. I love that something finally includes journaling and vitamins — both so important and often left out. Packed with recipes and shopping list, this could really be a jump start.
Or again with gestational diabetes? Or later in life, full on type 2 diabetes? This book is filled with advice to take to heart now, and to jump in full stream when we move past breastfeeding. Like always as I discovered with the Great Physicians Diet and others, getting healthy does cost some money up front. Healthier food has a higher grocery store price tag as does organic and more natural options.

Mark Hyman, MD Publisher: Hyman is the best-selling author of other medical books for the general public, and he maintains that fifty percent of all Americans have diabesity, which is the spectrum of imbalance ranging from mild in Title: Hyman is the best-selling author of other medical books for the general public, and he maintains that fifty percent of all Americans have diabesity, which is the spectrum of imbalance ranging from mild insulin resistance to prediabetes, to full-blown type 2 diabetes.
The latest research shows that insulin imbalance is the major cause of weight issues and diabetes, as well as heart disease, cancer, dementia, and most other diseases. You may have diabesity and not know it. Hyman presents his scientifically based program for rebalancing insulin and blood sugar levels.
He identifies the seven factors in achieving wellness: The reading of this book is rather dry—and it does suggest working with your medical doctor, so your physician will need to be open-minded and accepting of Dr.
The recipes included sound wonderful, but pricy, and also includes a shopping list so you can make sure you have all the ingredients on hand some are hard to find. Also, the supplements recommended seem to be only available on his website for a pricy amount.
Jun 07, Melanie rated it really liked it. The ultra-healthy program for losing weight, preventing disease and feeling great now. Diabesity is a globally affecting children through adults and is one of the leading cause in chronic disease today. To effectively get rid of it we need to take back our health. Dr Hyman goes indepth on the myths of diabetes and The ultra-healthy program for losing weight, preventing disease and feeling great now. Dr Hyman goes indepth on the myths of diabetes and obesity by looking at our health care system, the foods consumed today, of our sugar levels and how to regulate them.
Very detailed responses to the issues that are behind the diabesity epidemic. For someone who wants to know the hows and whys behind the epidemic, the first section of the book will be extremely helpful. Part two begins the 7 steps to treating diabesity by looking at your nutrition, hormones, stress, inflammation, metabolism and more.
Fantastic step by step ideas on how to begin treating each of these areas. In Part four Dr. Hyman begins the 6 week action plan, after prepping a week in the previous section.
Now this is where you get down to the grass roots and apply what he has been shedding light on in the previous sections. Basically getting rid of any foods that are not natural for your body. Get rid of the refined flours, carbs, sugars especially. I have been slowly working on this exact concept so it was very helpful to find it reinforced in this book! There are recipe ideas and and menu plans in the last section including shopping lists. I am hoping to take some of these ideas and work with them this summer as the fresh produce is abundant around us.
I look forward to seeing the results of my own health as I work toward getting rid of my own diabesity problems. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Mar 04, Orbs n Rings rated it it was amazing Shelves: A great resource and wealth of information for anyone whatever their lifestyle.
First and foremost, don't let the title of this book fool you. You don't need to be a diabetic to benefit from the information Dr. Hyman provides in this book. Anyone who is looking to change their unhealthy eating habits will benefit from reading The Blood Sugar Solution. Not sure if you have unhealthy eating habits?
I can promise you will be surprised by all the eye opening information in this book. I thought I alre A great resource and wealth of information for anyone whatever their lifestyle.
I thought I already knew everything there was to know about sustaining a healthy lifestyle, so I was really shocked by a lot of the information in this book.
This book was certainly an eye opening experience. Reading the chapter on inflammation alone, brought to mind certain family members and friends that would really benefit from knowing this information. I learned many things in this book that I have implemented in my own life which are helping me feel and look better. I recommend this book to anyone, and not just those trying to lose weight. This book will change the way you look at your food. It gives you the tools and advice that are life changing.
With this same information, Dr. Hyman has helped hundreds of people reverse their illness and get off of medication for good. It sounds hard to believe but Dr Hyman is a medical prodigy and one of just a few doctors in the medical field right now who are not following the norm and are actually out to truly help people get off of prescription drugs by implementing a system that truly works.
Feb 19, Mary BookHounds rated it really liked it Shelves: My last two blood tests showed that my glucose levels were elevated and I needed to do something to avoid my own family history of diabetes. I am not overweight but I really wasn't eating properly. The book goes into detail about which foods actually reduce your blood sugar and relieve other problems like inflammation, head aches and fatigue.
Even if you don't have issues with blood sugar, this book has great information just about living healthy. So far, I have reduced my sugar count just by eating better food and exercise, so there really isn't much magic as far as accomplishing that.
This book provides an excellent guide if you don't have access or the means to have clinical support in getting healthy. The plan is really simple and most of the foods are readily available.
There is a handy recipe guide in the back with an index to help you find them easily. I can't tell you how many books like this don't include that simple thing. One thing I haven't read in a book like this is about chemical sweeteners, which it turns out can be pretty evil. I still crave my one diet soda a day, but maybe in the future I can start replacing it with a healthier drink like green tea. Overall, this is a great book to get started with if you want to change your life and make a committment to healthier living.

I will share this with you about my experience Full Disclosure- I did not use any of the supplements recommended. On day three of the detox, I felt the positive effects of a healthy diet.
I embraced it now that I got through the first two days and my break up with sugar no longer seemed like a long haul.
No cravings. My head was clear; no clutter; no anxiety despite the difficult phone call the night before. Many of the meal and suggestions you can incorporate into your daily routine.
Feeling better about ourselves comes when we are living a healthy lifestyle. This plan teaches you how to listen to your body and provide it with nutrient rich foods. The recipes are easy to follow. Even the kitchen challenged, like myself, can complete them. Five out of Five Stars!

I have a family member who was diagnosed with diabetes after years of going to his doctor for all the symptoms he experienced before it was full blown diabetes. I always thought that more could have been done before it came to meds and dialysis and was glad that this book validated that thought.
I guess it comes down to what you are willing to put yourself through to steer clear of this awful disease. I gave this only 3 stars because it also read like an infomercial for his website.
While I would never slam capitalism, his website was mentioned several times. When I went there, it sounds like you have to download some extremely expensive things, such as over priced vitamins, to keep your account and quiz results.

Interesting book on our eating habits and how some dietary deficiencies can be overlooked. Skip the first 40 pages, take the quizzes to find out what you may be lacking and if you don't want to follow his plan, at least consider some of the ideas he puts forth to support a healthier lifestyle.
Feb 15, Maria rated it it was ok. Nothing new.
Same info as always in all Mark Hyman books repeated over and over again. First time I read his book Ultrametabolism I loved it. This is pretty much same stuff packaged differently, targeted at people with more serious problems what he calls 'diabesity'.
Apr 15, Cyndee rated it it was ok. Surely a lot of helpful information. But the diet would be impossible for me as an ovo,,lacto vegetarian, since the only sources of protein would be eggs, beans, and nuts. No dairy or grains is too restrictive, although I am cutting down and adding more exercise. Jun 14, Oksana rated it did not like it. Read like a very lengthy commercial.
Sep 11, Paul Froehlich rated it it was amazing. Mark Hyman calls the epidemic of obesity and of type 2 diabetes. This book is primarily about disabesity — its causes and its cure. Hyman predicts that one out of two Americans will be afflicted with diabesity by So what causes it?
Diabesity is almost entirely caused by environmental factors and lifestyle. Hyman calls it a myth that diabetes type 2 is genetic. What we eat and drink is the main factor in contracting disabesity. Brain imaging shows that high-sugar and high-fat foods work like heroin on the brain. Sugar-sweetened beverages S-SB are the single biggest source of sugar in the diet.
Nine of ten American children imbibe S-SBs daily. From - , consumption of calories by S-SB doubled, while obesity rates doubled in children ages 2 - 11 and tripled in children ages 12 -
